Rationalizing on the work published by Young Kwon et al Cell could peroxidasin play an active role in cancer via pathways of insulin/IGF signaling? Peroxidasin is cited as ImpL2 homolog in humans, but what makes peroxidasin an interesting molecule is the fact that it has been shown to play a part in different pathways associated with human neoplasm Nucleic Acids Research. To resolve the question/s of the role played by peroxidasin -if any- some possible paths could be explored: How is peroxidasin expressed in human cancer? Is peroxidasin a detectable seric protein, if so, is it elevated in cancer patients? Could an elevated expression of peroxidasin be linked with cancer-induced cachexia?
